How Deep Do You Plant Onion Sets?


Onions are planted either from seeds, plants or dormant bulb sets. Seeds take the longest amount of time to grow, while gardener's save time by planting onion sets which are widely available in the early spring. Planting the sets at the proper depth and spacing is essential to increase the onion size and quality.
